Gjensidige accelerates its digitalisation and enters into a new contract with EVRY
(Oslo, 8 June 2018) The Gjensidige Group has decided to enter into a new contract with EVRY as the company’s core supplier of technological solutions and digital services for the coming years. The parties have signed a letter of intent in which EVRY commits to providing Gjensidige with next-generation digital services, including private and public cloud solutions.
The contract also includes delivery of a new infrastructure platform built on automation and bespoke solutions that will enable Gjensidige to accelerate innovation and to efficiently deliver new and better services to its customers and employees. The agreement covers all business areas within Gjensidige with its approximately 4 800 employees across the Nordic and Baltic regions. The contract represents a total value of approximately NOK 470 million over five years, with options to extend for two additional years.
EVRY was awarded the contract based on an overall assessment of its delivery model and technological solutions, which facilitate innovation and emphasise security and compliance in combination with flexibility and scalability. Gjensidige conducted an extensive tender process, with EVRY winning the contract against strong competition from international providers in the IT services space.
“A secure and scalable IT platform is a prerequisite if we are to achieve our strategic targets. We need a collaboration partner capable of facilitating and contributing to our ability to take new, future-oriented products to market quickly. This agreement with EVRY gives us a platform for innovation that also has very high-quality in-built security solutions”, comments Helge Leiro Baastad, CEO of Gjensidige. He emphasises that this will also mean significant cost benefits for the company, adding “The agreement is consequently of great importance to Gjensidige".
The solution selected by Gjensidige is based on world-leading cloud technology and will be delivered from EVRY’s state-of-the-art data centre in Fet. This will give Gjensidige greater competitiveness and flexibility as well as the ability to accelerate its digital transformation, while also meeting strict security requirements.
“We are pleased that Gjensidige has chosen to once again put its trust in us and to extend its collaboration with EVRY. Gjensidige occupies a strong position in Norwegian society and provides reliable services that follow us as customers throughout our lives. This agreement paves the way for Gjensidige to create new, innovative and digital services”, comments Björn Ivroth, CEO of EVRY.
The letter of intent is subject to reporting requirements pursuant to Section 4c of the Norwegian Financial Supervision Act.
